Create projects based on climate action and saving the environment in a collaborative setting.
About this Event
Join us as we launch the first ever city-wide chapter of Code The Change in Calgary! We want to celebrate this day by hosting a kickoff party and mini hackathon. The central theme of this event will be Climate Action. It's going to be a jam-packed, collaborative learning experience with a chance to work with industry experts and local non-profits.
The day will be filled with presentations from local non-profits, project mentoring from industry leaders, free lunch and dinner, and a hackathon event. This will be a great opportunity to gain industry experience as well as connect with industry mentors and like-minded individuals.
